Location: Dubai, UAE
A focal point of the glamorous Emirati club scene, WHITE Dubai’s doors first opened in 2013, marking this spot out as one of the original destinations on the desert city’s electronic music map, its global reputation for hosting events growing in tandem with that of the towering metropolis its rooftop dancefloor looks out on. Since its inception, thousands of well-heeled and well-groomed hedonists have flocked here each week for benchmark-setting production and spectacle, while attention has also been garnered by the food and cocktail menus. Both of those helped the space through the global pandemic and lockdowns, with bookings during that most difficult of times refocused on local and regional artists, and residents DJ Moky, DJ Charlesy, DJ Bob Howard, DJ Jad Gemayel, and DJ ACE. Now moving past travel restrictions and seated parties, the debauched clubbing-meets-cabaret tone is back, as are the major A-list acts playing that booth on high.
